Favorite buffet restaurants

    FART is generally not a fan of any buffet-style food delivery system.
    But at least traditional buffet restaurants, like Ryan's, have guidelines for temperature.
    A store that has "grandma" cooking and setting samples within reach of every bacteria vector in sight is not what I consider a good choice.
    I pick Ryan's and my old childhood favorite, Luby's.
    Breakfast buffet in Caesar's is not bad after a big night.
    Yours, members and moderators?

    well Margaritaville in Key West is. . . . . Oh, buffet

    Bay View Inn in Petoskey, Mich. does a nice Sunday brunch buffet that includes a guy slicing up ham and roast beef, a waffle tsation with every topping one would ever want on a waffle and some nice high-end desserts.

    In my younger, more keg-filled days, my friends and I would nearly always follow Saturday night's drinking with Sunday at Big Boy's breakfast buffet.

    The Dungeness crab leg buffet at several of the local casinos is hard to beat, particularly if someone else is buying.

    Ah, to be a kid again. We'd hit the laser tag joint, CiCi's Pizza, then Krispy Kreme.

    There is (was?) a Mexican place at a mall in the Chicago suburbs that had a great Sunday brunch buffet, with a full fajita bar, juevos rancheros and the works. Really great stuff.

    Also will cast a vote for the world buffet at the Rio in Vegas. Phenomenal combination of quantity and quality.

    I like oatmeal.
    I tend to judge the breakfast buffet by the quality of the oatmeal.

    We were at Disney World last week and ate at Boma, a buffet in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, three times. My daughter about cleaned them out of oatmeal and hummus.

    My wife will whip up some homemade oatmeal for me when I'm on my best behavior.
    She bakes pumpkin spice and coffee cake into it.
    She knows it drives me crazy.

    Nowadays the only buffets I eat at are Chinese restaurants, where I know the food won't hasten my demise. But I was a big fan of Ryan's at one time.

    We ate at Ryan's back in May, I believe, and while the food was OK, my wife went to use the ladies room and came back with a kind of gray look on her face. She pushed her plate away and said that restroom was the most disgusting thing she'd ever seen. Considering she's a critical-care nurse by trade, that's saying a lot. She informed the manager about it and we left. A month later, they closed down.

    I briefly worked in the food industry. I have not eaten at a buffet since.

    Ate at "The Trough"....aka Golden Corral last week for the first time in years.

    Will be years more.
